Saying hi and freaking out

Recommended Posts

Don't worry, it'll be fine - words of wisdom from the truly crazy, having had my lapband done in Mexico! And this was BEFORE I discovered LapBandTalk to be able to talk to other people who had done it!

Ya, I was scared and excited, but mostly I knew I couldn't continue walking the path I was on. So, yes, scary, but definitely worth it!

OMG! What's wrong with you!

Just Kidding.... :eek:

Of course it's normal. Everything will be great. Nobody on this site died! (lol) ~ok, I have a SICK sense of humor...

I was totally freaked out. I live in Sac, CA. I flew to San Diego, drove over the boarder and had Lap Band surgery the same day... and get this, I TRAVELED ALONE! Yeah, talk about being totally scared. The only time I've been to TJ was to buy cheap liquor, get drunk and hope to crawl back over the border without being arrested! LOL To go there for surgery was INSANE TO ME. But, the doc and hospital were great and I was in good hands. Wouldn't have had it any other way.

You'll be fine. Don't be scared....

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
